Green Card - Become a permanent resident 

 

A Green Card is an official document issued by the U.S. government to aliens, allowing them to work legally in the United States.  This is an intermediate step toward becoming a naturalized U.S. Citizen.

The U.S. immigration system is an enormous bureaucracy.  It is vital that you understand all the requirements for getting a Green Card before starting your application – making a mistake can ruin chances.

Fortunately, our firm provides everything you need to understand your eligibility, and then make it through the bureaucratic maze.  Our firm will show you how to work with U.S. officials, how to prepare and present the right documents, and what to expect every step of the way.

 

Our firm will help you to get a Green Card:

  • Based on Marriage: Spouses and Fiancés

  • Based on relatives: Parents, Siblings and adult children

  • Political asylum or refugee status – granted asylum in the U.S.

  • Based on Investment

  • Green Card lotteries- wining the green card lottery

  • Executives and Managers

  • Schedule A Employees – nurses and physical therapists with a job offer from a hospital in the U.S.


U.S. Citizenship - Becoming a U.S. Citizen 

With our firm, you can shave months or years off the time it takes to become a citizen.  U.S. Citizenship provides the right to vote, the right to avail yourself of State and Federal assistance, the right to be considered for federal government jobs, protection and assistance of U.S. Embassies around the world and much more.  Another benefit, offered to a U.S. citizen, is the opportunity to apply for Green Card on behalf of your spouse, parents, children and siblings.
